event and booking calendar

It would be great if we could have an event/booking calendar, for tourist venues/events and hotel room booking that linked up with a payment gateway (my preference is Paypal) and automatically marked the room as booked on successful payment, or where the business could specify a a max number of tickets per event and mark as sold once that number has been reached.

I operate in a region where business is predominantly tourism, so the lack of this widget limits what I can use Webydo for.

Here's an example of a non-Webydo site of mine which use a booking calendar like this http://devon-lodge-holidays.com/lodges/booking-forms/book/bluebells although even this could be improved upon for the client and the site visitor.

    Hi David,

    We have added a new Plugin called SimplyBook.

    SimplyBook is a third party plugin that lets you take bookings, manage appointments and receive payments from visitors.

    The Basic functions are free. If you wish for more advanced options purchase a SimplyBook paid plan.

    Enjoy!

        SimplyBook is okay if you want take hourly bookings (say for a hairdresser), as it works in hourly units ONLY and has NO OPTION FOR DAYS. So even with their workaround, which confusingly for the end-user displays one hour per day, you can't block book a venue and pay for group of days or weeks. So for example if your customer wanted to book 7 days, they'd have to go through the whole booking and payment process 7 times.

        Hi David,
        That’s a great idea, we actually have something similar in development – a booking widget.
        It is planned for release in the next few weeks, we’ll keep you updated, thanks for the suggestion!
